WOMP 4/14/17 RACE REPORT
Here it is Friday night and we have eleven racers that want to square off with their Womp sports cars. The B’s are up. Good field
of six drivers including a son and a grandson. A couple of nice looking new cars this night. A Mazda 792 for Phil and a Porsche 917-10K for Steve. Too bad Steve’s chassis got bent into submission
before we really even got too far into this race. The first two heats were hotly contested between Scott, Tim B and Phil. Tim B had a one-lap lead over Scott and Phil with Matthew only four
back then Steve and Tim W going into heat three. After heat 3 Scott pulled out a one-lap lead over Tim B with Phil falling back with a problem we had trouble solving. Was it car? Controller? no
it is the circuit breaker! That probably cost Phil 4 or five laps, tough break. Matthew dropped back a few more but just held off Steve by a few. Tim Wood was having trouble keeping his car
within the earth’s atmosphere. It just did not want to stay on the track this night. Heat 4 was about the same even though Matthew was running about 2 tenths quicker than the rest. Heat 5 saw the
first three spread out a little and the other three close up a little. Heat 6 saw not much change except Steve got by Matthew for fourth. Heat 7 saw Phil briefly take second from Tim B and Matthew
take fourth back from Steve. Starting the last heat Scott had a seven-lap lead on the intense battle for second, which started about even with Matthew having about four laps on Steve for fourth place
and then Tim W. At the end Phil put in some really fast laps as well as Tim B did but he fell off a few too many times to hold off Tim B. Matthew turned the fastest lap in the last heat and managed
to hold off Steve and Tim W managed to bring the ill handling car home sixth.
The A’s are up. This night the A’s consisted of Jim, Mel, Paul, Pepper and Mike Brannian. Mike and Pepper were using cars that belonged to Mel so it seemed to Paul and Jim that there was a Mel on every corner. The first heat saw Mel and Jim get out to a comfortable lead. The other three were having some trouble staying on. Jim knew he was in trouble his car was very twitchy in the donut and was bouncing on the short straight between the pole and the switchback. Even though Jim was having these problems, he still managed to lead through heat 5. After heat 1, Paul was on the bottom but his car was too good to remain there. He started to make his charge in heat 2 turning 42 laps on green and by the end of heat three, he was tied with Mel just a lap back of Jim. He stayed a close third until heat 7 when he charged by Jim into 2nd place just behind Mel who had passed Jim for the lead a heat earlier. Pepper arrived without his box so he borrowed one of Mel’s Mazdas and did the best he could with a good but unfamiliar car. He started with three consecutive 38’s, which is good, but will not quite keep you in the middle of this bunch. It did keep him ahead of Mike who ran some 41’s but also some 36 and 37’s. The last couple of heats saw Mel hold off a fast closing Paul and a fading Jim. With Pepper and Mike running quickly but not quite consistent enough to challenge the top three. Remember that next week it is the toothbrush 1/32 cars on the Kingleman.
We had a really good turnout for our Friday night Womp racing that took place on our flat track this week. We had a total of 14 guys when it came time to begin racing with 7 in the “B” and 8 in the “A” as we had 1 racer from the “B” move up to compete in the “A” main. Up first in the “B” main it was Ken who jumped out to an early lead as he opened up with 34 laps with just a 1 lap lead over Russel. Ken would continue building a lead in the following 2 heats and at the end of the 4th he was just 4 laps ahead of Tim B. At the end of the 5th Tim B was trailing Ken by just 1 lap and at the end of the 6th he was able to move into the top spot and finished with a 5 lap lead at the end of the 6th. Tim B would get up to a 7 lap lead going into the final heat making his way down to white. He finished with 31 laps which isn’t the best but it was enough to get the win as he finished 7 laps ahead of Ken. Usually Tim would advance into the “A” main but he was using the wrong motor so it wasn’t allowed so it decided that Tim W would make the jump up into the A’s. The final for the “B” main came down to this; Tim B, Ken, Tim W, Russel, Mike, Steve, and Scott.
Moving on to the 8 man “A” main where we had Jay Henry join us this week. The power came on and it Mel who came away with the 1st heat as he had 35 laps on blue. We had a 4-way tie for 2nd place between; Pepper, Paul, Stu, and Jim at the end of the 1st heat also. Pepper would take over 2nd place during the 2nd heat leaving Jim just 1 lap back in 3rd place. The 3rd heat we saw no change as Pepper would remain just 1 lap ahead of Jim while Mel had a comfy 4 lap lead over Pepper. It was during the 4th heat that Jim went ahead of Pepper by 4 laps as he now had Mel to contend with. Pepper would remain in 3rd place during the 5th but it was during the 6th that Jay moved ahead and into 3rd place. Jim would come extremely close to catching Mel during the 7th heat as he moved within 2 laps but in the end it was Mel who came out on top. Mel came away with the win as he finished 5 laps ahead of Jim finishing with a total of 281 laps. The final for the “A” main came out like this; Mel, Jim, Jay, Tim, Pepper, Paul, Stu, and Russ. Thanks for coming out guys and don’t forget we run Retro Hawk Motors, hope to see you all next month.
